Raising two children helped me understand the true meaning of the phrase, “it takes a village to raise a child.” With the guidance, help, love, and support of my friends, relatives, and community, I’ve raised two wonderful young women.
Now that I am somewhat older, I’ve been experiencing a number of life events, some challenging and some happy, that have made me realize that we not only need community to raise our children, but we also need a caring community as we go through many of life’s challenges.
